Alternately titled: unloading my camera and avoiding having anything real to say.
Truth is, I do have things to say. And the real truth is that I'm just not ready to talk about some of those things yet, so I'm avoiding writing much of anything right now.
Being pregnant after losing a baby is brand new territory for me. Grieving and rejoicing simultaneously is exhausting and confusing and still somehow very beautiful and redeeming. I have a million thoughts, a million emotions, a million moments to tell you about. But I just need some more time before I can really talk about them here. I really want to and I plan to. So when I'm ready to I will.
Until then, here's another post buying me time until I write about what's really on my mind. :)
What we've been up to this fall:
Welcoming and photographing a friend's new baby boy
Oh, and remember this photo from last fall taken by our very talented photographer friend Claire Wise?
Well, Ry took this shot a few weeks ago and it's so funny to see how much this boy has grown in a year. (The photo is SO far from Claire Wise quality, but it's fun to see!)
I'm all but finished with this lovely quilt now! (I finished the handstitching on the binding the other night and then noticed one place that I'll need to go back over. Other than that, it's complete and it looks AWESOME!) I love it more every time I see it!
We've been painting a bedroom getting it ready to accommodate two instead of one. (And by "we've" I mean Ryan has... thanks, honey!)
We've been enjoying the last good swings on the swing set before the cold weather hits.
(If it ever does!)
Playing in the leaves
and enjoying house guests at the breakfast table!
We've been making tasty recipes and not letting any honey go to waste :)
We've been getting the yard ready for winter,
and enjoying all the fun things that come along with being 3!
And that is what we've been up to!
And now for a nice rest before the big Thanksgiving feast tomorrow!
Have a lovely, restful, worshipful Thanksgiving tomorrow, friends!
